Avon native now The Face of MyINDY-TV 23

INDIANAPOLIS — Lisa Lee has come home in a big way.

The Avon and IUPUI graduate recently moved back to Indiana after spending a few years working in Hollywood. She has translated that experience into her new gig as The Face of MyINDY-TV 23.

"I accomplished some of my goals (in Hollywood). I just wanted to be back where I'm from," Lee said while in the MyINDY-TV 23 studio at WISH-TV. "This contest was perfect for me."

As The Face of MyINDY-TV 23, Lee records and broadcasts from myriad public events around the city. Recently she conducted a segment on the Headless Horseman attraction at Conner Prairie. Next week she gets to go to Chicago and meet Steve Harvey on the set of his talk show, which is aired 4 p.m. weekdays on MyINDY-TV 23.

"It's not really a job because it's so much fun," Lee said of being The Face. She also helps with numerous station contests and giveaways, a current one being a trip to Chicago to meet Harvey.

Melissa Hook, promotion coordinator for WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV, says it's The Face's job to promote the stations to the public.

"It's such an interesting and unique position," Hook said. "It's definitely a talent-oriented position, but it's also a one-stop shop. It's meant to encapsulate every aspect of promotion."

Lee, who started in the role on Sept. 17, is the fourth Face since the stations commenced the position. Each Face serves as such for one year.

"The first two Faces have gone on to do some pretty significant work after this job," Hook said, adding the third only recently left the role. "It's a really cool steppingstone kind of job because it gives you practical skills. You're not just sitting and looking pretty. You have to know how to write, shoot, and edit - the interworkings as well."
